The NBL1 Cobra Women are just one win away from a berth in the NBL1 Championship Game, playing host to the Nunawading Spectres on Saturday night in a do-or-die Preliminary Final.
The Cobras advanced to the Preliminary Finals following a stunning road victory over Bendigo on Friday night, defeating the 19-1 Braves, 85-70. Kilsyth rode a remarkable second half turnaround to secure a home preliminary final, outscoring the Braves, 52-28 over the final 20 minutes to overcome a 13 point first half deficit. With Lauren Nicholson, Sarah Boothe and Klara Wischer combining for 67 points in the win, the Cobras shocked the league on Friday night to set up a golden opportunity this weekend to advance to their third championship game in the past five years.
It’ll be no easy task this weekend, though, with the red-hot Spectres heading to town following a stellar double-elimination weekend performance. Nunawading dominated the Waverley Falcons at home on Saturday, winning 89-61, before taking down the Ringwood Hawks on the road on Sunday, 97-73 to set up Saturday’s meeting with the Cobras.
The Cobras and Spectres split their season series in 2019, with the Spectres winning the first outing in Kilsyth by seven points in Round 11, before the Cobras took game two by eight on the road in Round 14. The two teams also met in last year’s SEABL Finals, with the Cobras defeating Nunawading, 81-58, in Round 1.
With the Spectres winning their first two finals games by a combined 52 points, and the Cobras boasting equally impressive results in their last two outings, Saturday’s showdown is set to be an absolute thriller, with a place in the inaugural NBL1 Championship Game on the line.
